Ventura Summer Camp 2013


The Summer Camp is a five day competition with sports, challenges, night games and more. In addition to these activities there will be talks on the Catholic faith and human virtues. It provides the boys with an opportunity to form friendships in an environment that reflects the atmosphere and values of the family home.

The camp is open to boys who are entering years 7, 8 and 9 in 2012.

2012 Catholic Home Educators Camp – North Coast NSW


North Coast Catholic Homeschool Camp

For many Catholic Home Educating families in Australia homeschool camps are an integral part of our lives. Lifelong friendships are formed, isolation is eased, support is given. This year our family will be attending (and hosting) the North Coast Catholic Homeschool camp for our 12th year! Excitement is building in our home, our children are asking, “what activities are we doing this year, who is coming? Will my friends from last year be there, will we have new friends?”

We warmly invite you to consider joining us for our 12th year!:) we still have a few cabins available. Held on the 10-14th September we are located at Lennox Head (Lismore Diocese), near the Gold Coast. Two hours south of Brisbane, nine hours north of Sydney.

At the core of our week is our shared Catholic Faith, our day begins with Mass, ends with the Rosary and Benediction and is woven throughout with Spiritual Talks and the opportunity for Confession. This year Fr John Rizzo (FSSP) will be our Camp Chaplain.

On the Tuesday Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett (Lismore diocese) celebrates Mass offering the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion.

It will be a wonderful week of making, renewing and building friendships. Impromptu games of soccer, dancing, fun and laughter into the night are our ‘stock in trade.’ Icebreaking games at the beginning and a time for parents to share ensures we all get to know one another.

Every day we enjoy swimming at one of the beautiful nearby beaches, we also enjoy a sand castle building contest, each year we hold a sports day, a concert and on the final night we have a grand finale with a bonfire.

If you are interested please don’t hesitate to contact Erin with further questions or for a brochure with more details at aussiethreads@gmail.com

We’d love to have you join us:)

Sovereign Hill Costumed Camp


Our three oldest attended the last one of these camps and had a great time. One even featured in a recent edition of Otherways. It gives the kids a chance to experience life at school in the 1850’s.

It was a great camp which finished with Blood on the Southern Cross. This years will be on from Wednesday 21 to Sunday 25 September 2011.
